Here's the deal...

The NEXT person to threaten another player over a stupid RP family is going to be banned. On Facebook, Skype, Yahoo...wherever.

This has gone on far too long. This is a GAME. If you depend so much on a fake family to make yourself feel so important and badass, get off the internet and get some professional help.

Seriously, people. Having a good time with it without interfering with other people's enjoyment, even making fun of it in a JOKING manner...that's all fine. But when it gets to actual threats and bullying, it's way past the point of acceptable.

Pish. You don't gotta worry about me. How many threads are about this stupid topic? Answer: Way too fugging many. And it's way fugging annoying. Get a grip, people.

thank you for the blog Witchy. A lot of people have taken this too far. Families should be fun and NOT ruin other player's fun. though i dont appreciate some people's constant discrimination against those who do partake in families but as put jokes are nothing to get worked up about seriously.

TheWolf Thomas • Thursday, August 5, 2010 - 2:38am • #8

Agreed, i made a comment about the families along time ago.

Thank you for posting this, seems like too much drama to get involved with to be honest.

I don't see the point in a family?

Back Is Popper • Thursday, August 5, 2010 - 2:12pm • #15

I like this post, cheers Witchy! Now bring on the HL fun ^_^

Parallel Park • Thursday, August 5, 2010 - 2:25pm • #16

@andypwns - some people likes to rp to the extent of having a family to rp with.

YAY for Witchy and Spiney :)

I debated posting this, but really, the worst that can be done is to have me banned/muted. And well, at least I get my point out there and hopefully it will help all those others who have something to say on it but haven't the courage to do so:

With all due respect to the staff, what people do off the site is up to them. Not anyone else. I'm sorry but it's true. The staff can't control what I, or anyone else, says anywhere anymore than we can control what the staff says and does.

And again, I'm sorry, but if people are going to RP off the site, then it has to be expected that fights will happen even then.

If they staff just told people to suck it the hell up, maybe just maybe they would have to deal with so many OWLs going "So and so is picking on me" Wah wah wah. Boo-freaking-hoo. I mean, really. MOST of the people complaining ARE adults themselves!

It's freaking ridiculous. The fighting, the drama, the lot of it.

If the staff want to come after "The Family" just because of a few bad seeds, then by all means. I know MOST of them can survive under the scrutiny. But I won't stand for the backpedaling on dealing with HL stuff off site and having to be censored as well. Because, to be honest, if someone is going to come to me in their RP form, I'm not going to turn them away. I'm just not. I can't be on HL all the time, so some things DO have to be handled elsewhere for me. Unfortunately, that means dealing with the fights too.

1. It's a game, if someone takes the threats that seriously, maybe they shouldn't be playing. 2. It's the internet, do you really think I'm scared of what you can do to me when we probably live nowhere near one another. Come on now. Really?

~Thinks that the agreement between her and Witchy should be posted on here as well~

@Kalli, its not that we're trying to control the things people say off the site, but when its a threat against the person and their playing of the game it automatically involves the game. People shouldn't have to worry about being threatened over some little family thing on or off the game. When someone tells you you're going to get ganged up and attacked pretty much if you do something, ultimately having their gaming experience ruined, its not fair to them, they should be able to enjoy it.

I can tell you, before this family stuff went south, back when it first started it was fine, just in the past year or so its gone bad to where people bite each others heads off over anything. There was NEVER that much drama on HL until that point. Its not fun for the people who have to read it in chats constantly either.

We're not going after all families, if you co-exist with others without being nasty to someone else and starting constant fights in chat with them we don't care.

i think the families , were stupid to begin with , i just ended up going with the flow..

amp;Snow Nyamp;mph amp; Khione • Friday, August 6, 2010 - 6:40am • #21

I fully agree with everything you and witchy have said.and I plan on following the rules all of them.I just want to be able to have fun and not worry about who will pop up in chat to egg me on trying to cause trouble with me and then off site being called mean and nasty names that I didnt do to them.I just want to move on which I have been trying hard to do since I came back on the site full time this past month from all my medical procedures and surgery.I just want to have fun and for any part I may have had in this I deeply apologise to all.

Deathstar • Friday, August 6, 2010 - 12:40pm • #22
